Have A Safe And Happy New Year

Just wanted to wish everyone a fabulous Happy New Year. Please be safe tonight!

As for the rest of the year, I wish you love, peace, and good health. Let’s ring out all the negative energy of this year, and ring in all that’s good.

There ‘s new music up in the BLB Jukebox and BLB Records…all Bette again for your enjoyment.

I also put up a couple of new polls as well!

ArtWork: Sammy Miro

As far as the Peggy Lee Songbook, it is, in general, getting rave reviews, but thanks to Sony’s big screw up, her CD, among others, was hurt by some negative publicity due to the copy protection flaws. Read More

Lesson Learned? Don’t F**K With The Consumers! :-)

Sony to settle copy-protection suits
By Jefferson Graham, USA TODAY

LOS ANGELES — Embattled music label Sony BMG Music Entertainment has agreed to settle consumer complaints about its controversial attempt to copy-protect CDs.

Under terms of a settlement consolidating several lawsuits, Sony will give consumers who purchased an estimated 10 million CDs a combination of cash, replacement music and free downloads.

The CDs — from artists including Alicia Keys, Santana, Neil Diamond and Bette Midler — used software from companies First 4 Internet and SunnComm that limited the number of times a CD could be copied on a PC. The software also made the PCs susceptible to viruses and spyware programs. Read More

Beaches Q & A With Bonnie Bruckheimer
7:30pm on Tuesday January 17th, 2006 at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood

The Other Beaches Duo

For 16 years, comedienne Bette Midler and producer Bonnie Bruckheimer were The All Girls Productions. On Tuesday, January 17th, the latter joins HMS for a stroll through the universe of Beaches.

By FilmStew Staff

It began in 1988 for producing partners Bette Midler and Bonnie Bruckheimer with, appropriately enough, a couple of illiterations – Big Business, starring Bette and Lily Tomlin as fraternal twins, and Beaches, the mother of all contemporary chick flicks headlined by Bette and Barbara Hershey. In between this impressive double debut and 2002’s Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, there were other “B” projects – For the Boys, Bette Midler in Concert, the TV series Bette and Some of My Best Friends.

Even Scarlett Johansson Gets Blown Away By “The Divne One”

Mister D: This is an excerpt from Ms. Smith’s column about the screening of “Match Point” in New York City.

NYP
Liz Smith
December 16th, 2005

AFTER THE screening Woody, the en tire cast and stars such as Bette Midler, Willem Dafoe, Matthew Modine, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marcia Gay Harden, Michael Stipe, Jeff Daniels, Patricia Clarkson, Alec Baldwin, Josh Lucas, Helena Christensen, Michael Imperioli and dozens more jammed into the Harbor Room of the Soho Grand.

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, who looks taller and even more dangerously alluring in person, bristled a bit when somebody jocularly referred to his character as a sociopath. “He’s not a sociopath. He’s a nice guy caught in an impossible situation!” O-kay! Read More

2 New Polls Up

I put 2 new polls up. One was just too offensive, even for me! I didn’t get any complaints. I just found it offensive. Not sure how comedians get away with certain types of jokes, but I couldn’t do it–I’d always be apologizing. So to anyone who did find it offensive, my apologies. It was supposed to be funny, and in the spirit of the season, I deemed it not so funny.

Love, Mister D
